~Letters at the start of most chapters. Narative styles Issues "Glen Donal. Home. It was an ache and absence in the heart. The scent of rough grass and the sharp tinny smell of snow from the mountains, the dangling arms of the willow trees, the neat lines of Mummy's rose garden, the flowers more flamboyant than any Midge had seen in England."
Chapter 1, Midge. "Pa saluted again. For a moment he didn't look like an old man. His movements were as crisp as lettuce. 'A rose for the Anzac boys,' said Pa, a bit too loudly. 'Rest in peace my rose'"
Lachan's Pa on ANZAC day in their town. ~Tim's missing letter Thank you for watching my presentation.
